Always throw away any leftovers in which the baby’s spoon has dipped.  Bacteria is introduced when you put a licked spoon back into a container. 


If your baby is not going to eat a full container, portion out what you think he or she will eat into a separate container and then serve.  The extra thawed food can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to two days from the date it was thawed.
